Tottenham discussing major swap deal with Arsenal target

Tottenham are discussing a major January deal with Roma which could see Vlad Chiriches move to Italy as a part of a deal for Mattia Destro, according to reports from talkSPORT.

Spurs chief Mauricio Pochettino’s striker hunt has led to links with the Serie A hot-shot over the course of the past few weeks.

The Argentine is thought to be unconvinced by Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado, which is backed up by Harry Kane’s rise to become the club’s first choice hit-man.

Destro – who has also been linked with Arsenal – is believed to be an option for the White Hart Lane side, with the 23-year-old himself keen on a potential deal.

Talks between Tottenham and Roma are ongoing, but reports suggest a possible deal may hinge on Chiriches heading to the Stadio Olimpico in exchange.

The Romanian defender has made little impact in north London, and has recently been shifted to right-back from his usual central role.
